Below you can listen to a sample of Vrindavan in Vindala from the same CD ‘Rite of Passage’. Vrindavan was originally composed for a singer plus tentet, it was commissioned by the Finnish jazz singer Mirja Mäkelä.
Vrindavan turned out to be one of my favourite pieces so I arranged it also for jazz quartet and string quartet which is the version underneath.
